and sometimes other places
Standing at the water's edge...my idea of bliss too! You had a lovely day at the seaside, Elizabeth...beautiful photo that breathe summertime. Was Buster with you? :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))
Lugging everything to the shore....I'd much rather just walk along the coastline.Lovely photos
That is a typical beach memory, though- watching parents juggle children and coolers, umbrellas and blankets - did a little juggling myself, in my time. You're right. Less is more.
Lugging stuff? That's want dune buggies are for! The only 'problem' with beaches is all that sand!!
Even the clouds arranged themselves artfully, close to the horizon. A perfect day. Yum!
I could feel the breeze off the ocean .. what fun photos!
Such lovely photos Elizabeth!So nice to see the shore! Thank you.;-)xoxConstance
Oh, it looks like you had a perfect day with glorious N.C. Wyeth skies!
as a teenager in CA, all I needed was a towel and coca butter, as a mom I needed to carry food and blankets and one very old beach chair to keep watch, now I carry nothing, I just walk and when I need to sit, a beach log or sand seem to do just fine :)
I love the wonderful perspective of these photos -- and the big block of blue sky, with blotches of color (all of them the "right" ones). You have captured one of the best bits of summer, SURELY!
Oh, the luggage that is taken! De Ja Vu! The cloud formation is perfect - a windless day, perhaps.... enjoyed looking at a familiar scene through a different lens!
I have GOT to get to a beach this summer! Great photos, Elizabeth.Kat
These photographs reminded me of Boudin's paintings Elizabeth - I think it is because things are at a distance. Lovely.
I can hear the gulls crying overhead, and the soft roar of the sea, the children's laughter and the flap of the flags in the wind. Just lovely.
What - no shots of your feet paddling?
SOEFFIN'JEALOUS!if i skip work one monday can i come too?
Nice photos! Sounds a great day!
Yes mam! That would be me carrying all that useless stuff! lolxo
I recall shlepping so much stuff to the beach with young kids. It was an effort. Yes, so much better to just stand at the water's edge.
Ah yes, I see you at the other side (of the world ;-) we're standing at the sea's edge and wishing each other Aloha, my friend, ElizabethComfort Spiral
I try to have a couple of days on the beach every year- usually Tynemouth Long Sands near Newcastle upon Tyne ( North East England)
Pictures with a sky so wide open, Winslow Homer would have loved painting them on one of his giant canvasses! Immensely beautiful images, Elizabeth! :-)
Beautiful!The top picture reminds me of one of the typical seascapes Eugene Boudin painted; just replace modern attire with hooped skirts and parasols, and children in naval cadet-like swimwear.
I look forward to hearing from you!
